Root Insurance Information Session (343546)

Root Insurance Information Session

Meet Amy Kaminski, Senior Candidate Experience Manager, and Courtney Bentley, Executive Assistant to the Chief of Corporate Strategy and Development to learn about opportunities with Root Insurance.
Root is the nation’s first licensed insurance carrier powered entirely by mobile and founded on the principle that car insurance rates should be based on how you drive, not who you are. Through smartphone technology and data science, Root measures driving behavior, and uses it as the primary factor in determining rates. The result is personalized car insurance for good drivers, better rates, and a seamless mobile app experience.
Root is a car insurance company founded on the belief that people who drive well are less likely to get into accidents, and that those people should pay less for insurance. With that in mind, Root set out to reinvent a broken industry—an industry that was still assigning rates based primarily on demographics and had an archaic agent structure.
Root is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio and is backed by some of the largest reinsurance companies in the world, including Munich Re and Odyssey Re. Currently, Root is available to drivers in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Utah, and will be coming to more states soon.

Candidates can apply via the “Events” section on the WAVE’s website. (The link to this application has been provided when you click "RSVP" for this event on the top right hand corner of the page) Make sure to follow the instructions provided.

Unfortunately given the high volume of candidates that WAVE receives for this event, WAVE cannot provide feedback on submissions that were not accepted. Candidates that are unavailable to attend the event are still encouraged to apply as all resumes (including those not selected for in-person attendance) will be included in a resume book provided to sponsors.

Fee: There is not expected to be a charge to participate although WAVE reserves the right to charge a $50 no-show fee if a candidate indicates they will attend the forum and does not show.
